was speaker boehner's office did not return the president's phone call and a lack of communication with the president. it is almost like there is a personal weakness to have somebody to dinner so what should we even do it? guest: relationships need to be built. i think president obama is right when a complaint that boehner would not return his phone call for almost a day. that is unheard of. the white house chief of staff goes swayback when he was an aide to tip o'neill in the 1980's. he was appalled at the speaker will not call the president back and made the point internally at the white house that when ronald reagan called, the phone call was immediately returned. boehner's argument was that he had to put together a congressional deal. he thought it would affect the financial markets. that is his excuse. president said, "why didn't he just call and say, i am working on it." it was the silence that offended the president and the white house staff. boehner did call and said he was backing out. one of the aides who work with them for years said he was spewing coals like a furnace i

"he wasn't going to get a damn dime more out of me," boehner told woodward. at a critical juncture boehner didn't bother to return the president's phone calls. when they connected, the furious president was spewing coals. the president acknowledged he was angry, but also tells woodward, he had sympathy for boehner because he couldn't control extremists in the new tea party congress. you see how crazy these people are. i understand him, the president said. through woodward, the total breakdown of the talks reflected badly on everyone. it was clear no one was running washington. it was trouble for everyone, but especially for obama. >> woodward shows an almost complete lack of communications between republicans in the white house. when republicans won the house in 2010, the president wanted to call john boehner to congratulate him, and nobody in the white house had his phone number. >> thanks so much, john. on monday, you'll hear more of
